Things to do with a tin of ham

I don’t usually buy tins of ham as I try to avoid high salt, processed food. I also have memories as a kid of slicing my hand on the sharp edges of those tins with a key. I got a tin of ham, however, at the community pantry. I have brought it on holiday as we are self catering. When I open it I will try a bit as the quality of tinned ham varies a lot, and this will help me decide what I am going to do with it.

Tinned ham stores well, is easy to transport, and is very versatile and so is a great addition to your food stock if you can get one for a good price or free. It is not just for sandwiches as I thought as a teenager.

If it is good quality I might cut off two thick slices and fry with eggs for breakfast. For lunch I would probably chop some into a cheese or tomato sauce and have with pasta. I might slice it up with mozzarella and pesto in a panni instead. Another thing I could do is glaze it with honey and bake it for a short while (or airfry) and serve it with the new potatoes and green beans I have brought. Sometimes I will put some on a pizza, add it to a rice dish with vegetables and spices. I can also add some to an omelette, and if it is good quality it is nice in a ham, salad sandwich. I could also put it in a stew or a soup, have with cheese (cut up small) on baked potatoes, or have in a cheese sauce in pancakes. I will get at least 2 meals for the two of us out of this can. What would you do with it? You had some great ideas about the rice, the other day, thank you.
